AICTE selects upGrad to deliver deep tech skills for students and institutions in India

Mumbai: All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), an MHRD undertaking, has chosen upGrad, one of India’s leading online higher education providers, to make future-forward topics like Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning accessible to all.

The NEAT initiative allows universities and learners to choose the topic they want to learn from an AICTE- approved platform.

“Since upGrad’s inception our major focus has been learner-centricity. Understanding learner requirements and delivering programs specific to them has always been our priority. The one-size-fits-all approach can not and should not be followed when it comes to education. Being selected by AICTE bears testimony to our work and we are extremely glad about this recognition,” said Mayank Kumar, Co-founder & MD at upGrad, on receiving the confirmation from AICTE yesterday.

upGrad’s Post Graduation (PG) programs including the Entrepreneurship Certification, PG Diploma in Data Science, Digital Marketing Certification and Business Analytics Certification have been chosen, along with upGrad’s College programs, which includes specialisations in Data Science, Digital Marketing, Business Analytics, Fundamentals of Programming and Full Stack Development.

The decision arrived after completion of a rigorous screening procedure that involved metrics including the personalisation offered, content quality, industry and employment relevance and financial performance, to name a few.
